    I have read that 4198 and 5744 were both made to keep pressures low enough for Blackpowder cartridge rifles. Follow the published load data.

    Norma is great brass also. The rep. on Norma is the head is softer so primer pockets loosen sooner. For me in 6mm BR that has been true.

    Starline anneals the same as every other manufacturer with the exception of some of the straight walled original blackpowder cartridges that are often loaded to well above SAAMI specs. Starline recommends that the user anneal for BP usage to...

    As to coarseness of the finish that is a function of glass bead size, distance to work and the pressure used. Vapor blasting and glass bead blasting can and do produce the same finishes. Vapor blasting has several advantages in a production...

    Since the burn rates of these powders are relatively close, both are ball powder and the amount mixed is very small it really is more of a comfort and knowledge concern than a safety concern. If you are competent enough to purchase and use surplus...

    Just touching the lands is rarely the most accurate unless you are soft seating. Heavy jamming the bullets can be very accurate. I have one rifle that has a unreal high round count that still holds 3/8 MOA at 300 yards. As to the bullet jump...

    On a side note the 6mm Remington/244 failed since the 12 twist would not stabilize the 100 grain bullet like the 243 Win. Your 14 twist in a lower velocity cartridge probably will be less successful. ...
